The Southeast Seminole Heights Flooding Relief Project involves designing and building a major stormwater conveyance system to improve drainage and reduce flooding of roadways, homes and businesses. This work is part of the City’s ongoing commitment to invest in neighborhoods and upgrade essential infrastructure. Construction began in Fall 2021 and will be completed approximately three years later.
This website was launched during the design phase to keep Seminole Heights residents and businesses updated through every phase of the project.
Construction will cost approximately $39 million, which includes $29.1 million for stormwater improvements, $8.9 million for water improvements and $555,000 for transportation improvements. The Southwest Florida Water Management District is co-funding approximately $15.8 million for eligible stormwater design, permitting and construction costs for the project.
